First it would be advantageous to discover exactly how sound moves and can be transmitted before we are able to identify ways to eliminate any loud noise getting into or out of your home.

Soundproofing Darley Dale Derbyshire (DE4 2)

There basically two ways by which sound can travel around a home:

1. By vibration of solid materials and objects.

2. By the vibration of air molecules.

Sound also travels through water, but unless you're looking at soundproofing an aquarium or pool we will simply concentrate on the isolation via materials and air.


Sounds can be transferred into and out of a room through open ducting, gaps around doors, single glazed windows and even electrical sockets and switches. All noise vibrates the molecules in the air and this vibration is what we pick up and hear as sound. Irrespective of the source of the sound; heavy machinery, music, children playing, road traffic or passing aircraft, all sounds are produced and transmitted in precisely the same manner.

If you can visualise your room as a bucket, you are trying to find any leaks to seal before you fill it with liquid.


Sound waves can additionally be reflected by, transferred to or absorbed by solid objects and structures. The walls, ceilings and floors will all affect how sound travels around an area, and can even transmit that vibration to other rooms in a property. Care should be taken with solid concrete or brick walls, such as in cellars, since sound can be transmitted and sometimes even amplified to other areas of your home.

How should we stop these sounds and vibrations from having an adverse effect on other people? Soundproofing is the answer.


Give some thought to covering a bare floor surface, which resonates and reflects sound, with a rug or carpet. Such a simple and straightforward solution can spruce up a room and help to dampen down any noise at the same time. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be used to enhance soundproofing and are simple to fit and maintain.

Another inexpensive and DIY solution is to plug any holes around electrical sockets, windows, light fittings and door frames. Plugging the gaps and holes with a specialist acoustic sealant found in some DIY and building material shops, will make an enormous difference to sound transmission in your rooms. There may be a considerable difference in price in comparison with a regular sealant, but the soundproofing capabilities are a lot better and can make a huge difference to a room.

If you're fortunate enough to be redecorating or renovating while tackling your soundproofing requirements, then think about putting up an extra skin of plasterboard (also known as sheet rock, gypsum board or drywall). Plasterboard is a very dense material that is both effective and economical for soundproofing purposes. If you're fitting a home office, games room or cinema room then plasterboard will help to minimise sound transference to and from that room, and can be readily decorated after installment. It's better to hire an experienced Darley Dale tradesman to install plasterboard unless you are experienced in this task.

The final DIY solution is to consider the doors in your property in Darley Dale. Hollow doors are a relatively cheap option although their soundproofing capabilities are far from the best. Solid doors, whilst a little bit more pricey, can have a significant effect on the soundproofing qualities of a room.


If the level of sound is excessive in your area, on account of traffic noise from a busy road nearby, or aircraft flying over for example, then more severe methods to reduce the excess noise will need to be explored. The best solution for resolving these problems is to get hold of a decent acoustic and soundproofing contractor from the local region.

The first questions you will be asked are:

  1. From which direction do the sounds seem to be coming from? i.e. Through the walls, doors, windows, ceiling or flooring or a combination of all of these.
  2. What sounds or noise are you seeking to suppress? i.e. External issues like overflying aircraft, neighbours playing loud music, traffic noise etc, or sounds inside your home from a teenagers bedroom or family room.
  3. What are the dimensions of the area or room that must be soundproofed?
  4. What is the area you want to soundproof made from? (i.e. a fully lined concrete wall, a plasterboarded partition wall or a brick wall).

With answers to these queries a genuine soundproofing firm in Darley Dale will work out solutions for your circumstances, and just as important, your allotted budget. They'll provide you with different strategies for soundproofing each of the problem areas within your room.


To soundproof any sort of room requires two key approaches:

  1. Cut down on the ways that sound is transmitted through and reflected by solid surfaces.
  2. Update and improve the level of sound absorption.

To effectively assess the aspects that require improvement, a site survey needs to be performed by a professional soundproofing team.

Solutions from the survey will probably include the addition of materials with different masses and densities to help enhance the soundproofing properties of the area. Soundproofing will be enhanced by the addition of acoustic foam and rubber which absorbs sound waves and enhances and a room's sound quality.

Voids between joists may need insulating to remove resonation spaces between them. If you visualise these spaces as similar to a drum or wooden cajon then you'll see that by leaving wall cavities and floor or ceiling joist spaces empty, you're creating a noise amplifying area.

Mixed layers of materials with different masses and densities do a better job of absorbing noise than a single material layer of one type. This is due to the fact that different frequencies are affected by different kinds of materials, therefore a variety of layers, shapes and densities within your soundproofing panels are needed.

All soundproofing installers in Darley Dale will be needing to follow the guidelines for residential buildings as set down in Part E of the Building Regulations. These regulations have to be adopted so as to safeguard yourself and neighbours from the harmful effects of sound pollution.

Trade bodies in the soundproofing industry who offer advice, training and qualifications are the Association of Noise Consultants and the Institute of Acoustics. Any Darley Dale contractor bearing IOA or ANC accreditation has been appraised to ensure they offer the highest standards, quality and reliability of workmanship within the industry.

Soundproofing Foam Darley Dale

I was interested to learn quite recently that one of the most commonplace soundproofing key phrases typed into Google and Bing was "soundproofing foam", and for local searches "soundproofing foam Darley Dale" and "acoustic foam Darley Dale". That's really quite interesting, because it suggests that Darley Dale home and business owners are assuming that soundproofing foam is a suitable product for fixing their noise issues.

The last thing I want to do is be a bearer of bad tidings, but if you're thinking that the racket from your noisy next door neighbours in Darley Dale can be eliminated with acoustic foam, you are wide of the mark.

The familiar "egg box" style foam, that often seems to be the trademark of soundproofing, isn't actually designed for blocking out noise, but has the purpose of reducing amplifying and echoing in music studios and comparable spaces, where it can also improve the acoustic performance of a room. Soundproofing foam like this is not good for stopping noise from moving around your house, or preventing sound from penetrating a neighbouring wall. Given that soundproofing foam is spongy and porous, it actually lets sound pass right through it, and has not got the consistency to inhibit it.

It might be that you're actually creating a music studio in your house in Darley Dale, in which instance this product might be extremely useful for you.

AMW (Acoustic Mineral Wool)

One of the handiest materials for soundproofing properties in Darley Dale, AMW (or acoustic mineral wool) has various applications for your noise reduction requirements. Acoustic mineral wool is designed specifically for installation in the cavity spaces of ceilings, walls and floors, to enhance acoustic performance, absorb airborne sound and dampen vibration.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Darley Dale

Typically available in slabs of 1200mm x 600mm, AMW also comes in several thicknesses (25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm). Non-flammable and chemically inert, AMW is often made from recycled materials (around 20%). It will not have a reaction with any substances or materials that it comes into close contact with (i.e. metal wall ties, brickwork, plastics, masonry), and doesn't encourage the development of fungi, mould or bacteria.

Acoustic mineral wool is notably effective as a sound absorbing filler when installed between flooring joists, stud partitions and suspended ceilings, and is widely used in the construction sector for fire, acoustic and thermal insulation. When it comes to separating walls and floors, and so as to comply with Part E of the Building Regulations, AMW can be used in partnership with other acoustic products.

Soundproofing or Acoustic Underlay Darley Dale

If you would like to lower the noise experienced in your home in Darley Dale without causing too much disruption, you could consider installing some acoustic underlay. These soundproofing underlays can be used successfully on both concrete and wood floors, and underneath engineered wood, carpet, laminate and vinyl planks floor coverings.

When your issue is mostly impact noise and not airborne noise, soundproofing underlay is a particularly beneficial solution. In recent times, the increased popularity of "hard" floor finishes has resulted in more problems with impact noise in lots of Darley Dale homes. Activities like general footfall, children running around and moving furniture, are the sort of noise we are talking about here.

Do not confuse normal carpet underlay with genuine acoustic underlay, because some unprincipled carpet retailers may try to sell you such products, with claims that they're suitable. If your noise problems are serious, be sure you purchase a good quality soundproofing underlay from a respected supplier.

Even though impact noise can be dramatically reduced with acoustic underlays, they have varying degrees of success with regards to loud music, blaring TV's and constant talking, and other airborne noise. You should discuss the precise kinds of noise you are seeking to lower with the soundproofing specialist or supplier, and this should enable you to establish the right underlay for your soundproofing needs.
